Stories of mormon faith transitions. Share your truth – own your story!
The Mormon church has a practice where a Bishop holds an interview to determine the worthiness of any member. These interviews are required to attend the temple and repent of many "sins". Bishops ask questions regarding sustaining church leaders, paying the church money as tithing, and any sexual activities. These questions are asked to children as young as twelve and even eight when most Mormon children are baptized and officially become members of the church. There has recently been backlash about Bishops asking wildly inappropriate questions during these interviews with children and young teens. Sam Young worked to raise awareness to the inappropriate nature of these interviews, and he was excommunicated from the church.
